« day two | Main | life and love and why »


day one: so far, so good.

everyone seems friendly and happy. the woman i will be working with, who is currently training me, is great. our supervisor, who initially interviewed me, is also great. making my way around the accounting system [peachtree, for those in the know] should be a relative breeze.

i'm now in an area of town where i can walk to various restaurants for lunch, although probably not so much for any breaks. this is novel for me. and convenient, since driving elsewhere for lunch runs you the risk of never finding a parking spot again [although this will be less risky starting next week, when most students will be gone for the summer].

note to self: wear sensible shoes if planning to walk uptown for lunch.

i sincerely hope your first impression of the folks at your new workplace is accurate. i too thought the same thing of my new coworkers when i started in april at the hospital, only to find that most are backstabbing, spiteful, old biddies who delight more in badmouthing those around them. *sigh* (okay, so i exaggerate, but there's quite a few too many of'em.)

actually, the walk uptown is really not that bad...i make it, myself, on an almost daily basis. when you work in the basement, all day, it's good to see natural light every once in a while.

by the way, thanks for telling us about your first day, i'd been meaning to ask...i noticed your car in the parking lot, this morning.

paul - indeed. the eagle's wings are flapping.
